Chilled Curry Chickpea Salad

This was so fun!  I rarely do cold side dishes, but now I am thinking I should do them more often!  Not to mention…I am in LOVE with chickpeas!  And there are tons of benefits in lentils!  And Mr. Rodgers loves curry!  Basically I am saying…this is a win win win WINNNN!  Such an explosion of flavors and textures!  Great!

 

So here’s what you need:

  • 1 Can Chick Peas (Garbanzos), or about 2 C boiled dried
  • 1 Can Lentils, or about 2 C boiled dried
  • 1/2 C Red Onion, Minced
  • 3/4 C Celery, Diced
  • 3/4 C Colored Bell Pepper, Diced
  • 1/4 C Olive Oil
  • 2-3 tsp Red Curry Paste
  • 1 Tbsp Curry Powder
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

 

And here’s how you do it!  (It’s REALLLY hard <–sarcasm!)

  1. In a bowl, combine chick peas, lentils, and veggies.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the rest of the ingredients.
  3. Drizzle the “dressing” over the bean/veggie mix, and stir to coat.  Taste and adjust with salt and pepper.  Eat and enjoy!

Serve along side some yummy protein!  This is beside some amazing ribs…that I am crying inside because I didn’t write down my recipe for and can’t remember 😥  Woe is me!  But!  That’s okay because at least we got this fantastic side dish!!
